Tehran, IRNA -- Commander of the Iranian Army Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said on Saturday that upgrading Iran's combat capabilities, including drone capabilities, is not stoppable by any means.

Speaking during a visit to a secret underground base for drones, Major General Mousavi said that "our biggest achievement is that we have never relied on anywhere and provided whatever we need for our defense".

He said that the launch of this secret base by the Iranian Army is in line with the main mission of the armed forces to defend the country's independence and territorial integrity.

The commander added that the need for enhancement of long-range drones with high flight resistance capacity and the high capacity of carrying ammunition for targeting strategic bases led the country to promote the capacity of the existing drones and equipping them with different types of missiles and bombs with different ranges.
